Where to find Energy Efficient Lighting in Ghana

Whether you’re a builder, remodeler, or homeowner, reducing energy costs in the home is desirable — and your efforts now will continue to pay dividend each month. Royal Depot offers a number of products to help you reduce residential energy costs in Ghana. Start by focusing on the following three areas:

  • Energy-efficient appliances – Appliances tend to represent the largest portion of most residential energy usage. Not only do appliances such as refrigerators and freezers run 24/7, they require a great deal of energy. While air conditioners are not necessarily used around the clock, they are costly to operate. While an appliance’s purchase price is a consideration, the true cost of an appliance equals its purchase price plus its operating costs over its lifetime. By choosing an energy efficient appliance, you can reduce the total cost of ownership and enjoy lower energy bills each month. Ghana’s Mandatory Appliance Standards and Labelling regime attempts to make it easier to select energy-efficient appliances (the more stars on the label, the more energy efficient the item is). Choose the most energy efficient appliances you can afford, and reap the rewards each month through lower energy costs.
  • Energy-efficient lighting – Energy Saving Lamps, or compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), are also subject to Ghana’s labeling requirements. CFLs use much less energy than incandescent bulbs, and last much longer. LED lighting is even more energy efficient, and prices are beginning to improve.
  • Improving the energy efficiency of plumbing – There are a number of steps you can take to improve the energy efficiency of residential plumbing. Start by insulating pipes. Next, choose low-flow faucets, showerheads, and toilets. These items use much less water than their full flow counterparts — and you’ll never notice the difference. By reducing the amount of water you use in the home in the first place, you’ll also reduce the amount of water that needs to be heated.

These are just a few of the many options available to reduce energy costs in the home. Royal Depot carries a large selection of energy-efficient appliances, lighting, plumbing, and more. Royal Depot is also the largest supplier of energy efficient lighting in Ghana.
